The building at 280 High Street and long set of offices and shop windows stretching into the distance along James Street have been empty for three years since Swinton Insurance closed. The property required some remedial works to repair: overhaul of the roof; the interior; electrical rewiring; a new fire safety system; plumbing systems and general refurbishment.

Plus we have a group of Dragons’ Den style of business mentors with the skillset that has helped many new and recently established businesses grow and reach their full potential.

With the smaller offices guided at £28 to £78 per week rental, the medium size to larger offices are now available in this substantial building. The average size of office we have is £49 per week. Just £7 per day. That is because we have worked hard over the past 23 years to keep rents AFFORDABLE in the company efforts at helping to keep the High Street of various towns ALIVE.

Our aim, indeed our experience is that a demand exists for more economically priced smaller offices to bridge the gap between newstart businesses moving out of the spare bedroom at your home-office and into a fully-fledged shop or stand-alone offices in the High Street with £800 to £1,000 cost in rent and overheads. Usually these moves to more professional settings carry very substantial risk to viability of your business. A financial and business shock to many. Often such extra red-tape costs are fatal to embryonic businesses. But major employers such as Amazon, Apple and Google started out life this way…

$700 Billion Apple Inc., DID Start Out In This Very Garage. But a lot of work was done at the next premises as Steve Wosniak explains: here

A little bit of myth, but has a decent amount of truth for many fledgling businesses

They and other successful companies always kept a firm eye on the costs and overheads. Hence the provision of modest sized, professional offices at locally affordable prices: £28 to £78 per week (average new office rental is £49 per week). This helps embryonic young businesses gain confidence and build up their financial reserves as a first step rather than take on high levels of cost from the get-go.

Whether you are an accountant, estate-agent, electrician, plumber or book-keeper; even an Ebay business person that has outgrown your home garage and your spouse is getting grumpy because your success is taking over the house, we should be able to help you.

First, with a cost-effective office/retail unit with 280 High Street/James Street. Then when you are ready, we are happy to consider buying a shop for you to rent and assist you in your journey of growth.

In due course, we generally help nurture newstart plus growing businesses evolve from the back bedroom or garage of the entrepreneur’s home to a fully fledged shop or light industrial unit/factory setting.

We even buy shops for our tenants when they need larger premises to rent and cannot afford the full capital outlay themselves. Particularly if it helps regenerate a tired looking High Street.

Indeed keeping High Street shops alive will become particularly difficult with the advent of Covid-19. In fact, with 2,500,000 folk looking at the stark option of unemployment once the Furlough money runs out and ruthless Willie Walsh types at British Airways fire tens of thousands of people, the least the rest of us can do is work together to create new jobs.

Over the past 23 years our group of Real Dragons’ Den directors and subscribers have renovated 52 buildings and created 151 new jobs.

Each business is a stand-alone entity as the shareholders tend to differ from project to project. Some of our Real Dragons’ Den mentors prefer investing in hotel renovations and catering jobs, others prefer factories and the provision of industrial jobs. Others from our main group have expertise in town centre regeneration and enjoy getting empty, disused shops re-opened with retail staff employed in new jobs.

This specific premises and project at 280 High Street, Arbroath is owned by venture capital/job creators that prefer office premises. Though because Tayport Group Ltd and Scotslion Ltd., shall be utilising a couple of the 14 offices for their own HQ purposes, we are delighted to advise new tenants that if they desire, there is skillset at hand which can be deployed to help you overcome many hurdles and help make your own chosen venture a success. This is entirely optional. Many folk just seek a High Street presence and can run their business as they have created it and know it best. But there is a comfort that you have people onsite that can lend a hand if needed. Entirely at your option.

If you would like to enquire about renting one of these offices at 280 High Street and/or 1 James Street, Arbroath, Angus….

Please feel free to get in touch…

The Silvery River Tay: Tayport Group Ltd., & Ethical Investment

Since the Covid-19 lockdown, we are making plans to over-engineer the safety protocols and make these premises especially suitable for safe operation during the pandemic. Once the vaccine/cure has been located to protect against Coronavirus, a new HEPA standard air filtration and various safety systems will illustrate best practice for when the next pandemic emerges. For example we are future proofing against the risk of random Covid-26 and Covid-32. Given the world has already SIX outbreaks in the past 20 years such as SARS (2002) + Bird Flu H5N1 (2003) + Swine Flu H1N1 (2009) + MERS Covid (2012) + Avian Flu H7N9 (2013) + Coronavirus Covid19 (2019), it makes sense to future-proof our buildings so they are practical and work well, during and then outwith these times of pandemic. Full list: Click here.

In a strange way, things are likely to come right in the end. Because as the prices of buying shop premises comes down down to much more affordable levels, so too does the rent. This hands businesses a decent chance of viability and success. In these circumstances, we all win.
